With his declaration of love not successful Lee thinks it is fine, this result was to be expected, and he anticipated to even be called a pervert. Nevertheless Lee feels this feeling of losing his first love is not going to be over in a day. Asked by Gan to date him Lee raises just in case whether he is trying to threaten him to get his money. He is also concerned at the possibility of rumors being spread, and Lee knows Gan will not believe him but he has always been really weak and is not fit to be an errand boy for him. Lee is too scared and considers how Gan is asking him to go out, and processes his request being denied by Han, to another sudden one, and why it is happening at the same time. Remaining in bed, Lee tells his sister Joo he also has times where he wants to be alone. Angered at his friend Park, he accuses him of betrayal and planning to eat everything Joo gave him for the details on asking someone out. With Gan entering the class Lee's anger is gone as he urges them to speak alone outside. Wondering if Gan is crazy Lee states he clearly rejected him and questions why did he show up at his classroom saying all those weird things. Apprehensive, Lee looks right since, who knows, maybe someone is listening to them talking right now. Lee adds that other than Gan's name he does not know anything about him so questions what kind of joke is he even pulling. Deeming it not even funny, Lee asks if Gan thinks he is not hurt enough already, and continues to say how a certain someone does not care about his feelings. Registering that his first kiss was from Gan he also remembers the class' reaction to the rumor they were going out and thought if this carries on he will be the first person to die from a mental breakdown. Taking action Lee says if Park dare tells Joo he will cut off all ties with him. The reason he did not tell anyone was not because it was a guy, but because it was the mad dog Gan. He likes playing video games, eating oranges, and pizza and as Park tells Gan this, Lee labels him a traitor, and a meanie. Speaking to Gan he asks if it is not troublesome for him to always come down every break in-between lessons. As Gan says when they start dating he will be his, Lee answers no, he will still belong to himself. Fidgeting as he speaks to Han to say this is all a misunderstanding, Lee mentions that he and Gan are definitely not dating and he is not the kind to go for another guy just because he got rejected. Unable to think properly Lee wonders how he is supposed to explain this, he cannot possibly complain about Han's brother. With Han understanding, Lee guesses he will be relying on him regarding Gan. Panicking when he sees that Han has been hit, Lee turns to Park on how he said they would not fight. It is exactly because of Gan's personality as to why he does not want to date him. Suspecting Park has been bribed again when he is advised to date Gan, Lee shares he is really frustrated. Wondering why everyone is acting so weird he states should they not be stepping in to stop anything else from happening. Asking what about him, Lee questions whether Park is not feeling disturbed and why is he not asking him anything. Regarding Han he feels the bruises look serious and no matter how he looks at it Lee feels it is his fault. Due to Park's message Lee heads on a date with Gan and enjoys the online games in an Internet café and other activities such as shooting basketball hoops in an arcade.

Lee's friend, and told by Min Joo that she was worried about Lee he sent her a text but accidentally disclosed too much information. Confronted by his favorite buddy Lee he does not really like the idea of getting beaten so suggests he try to calm down so they can talk about this matter. Having messaged Joo that Kee got rejected and was crying in the bathroom, Park added that after school someone else confessed to him. Park speaks how he did not expect Lee to show an even more depressed face compared to when he was rejected but says at least he did not tell Joo the name of the people involved. When Lee demands to know how he can shut that big mouth of his Park answers what if he used his hands, covering his mouth would not have any effect. Besides, he was offered two bottles of soda together with fried chicken to eat. Certainly not intending to eat everything by himself Park announces he still has some conscience left in him. He appeared shocked when Gan asks Lee to go out with him in the middle of class. Noticing other students observe, Park states he thinks Lee got famous. Now since they know who Lee is dating Park asks whether he should help him prepare his will. Guessing Lee did not tell anyone because it was a guy, Park wonders if Lee would be dead if Joo found out about this. Aware of Gan's background, Park advises Lee to think things through. Asked what he would do if this happened to him, since Lee hates the idea of it in the first place Park suggests he stop hesitating and just skilfully reject Gan, but not anger him so Lee can avoid hospital. Park knew this would happen, that Lee would have already called Gan crazy and mentally impaired, so hands him a will. Written by himself it reads that Lee intends to pass down all his DVDs and games to his beloved friend, Park. He professes to be hurt when Lee will not tell him the guy he really likes. Informing Gan of Lee's interests, Park is also sure to add what he likes, namely eating friend chicken. He would go crazy if everything was just only pizza, but if is were ordered, Gan should not add pineapples. With Han and Gan speaking Park asks Lee if there is anything he did not tell him since with the seriousness the situation seems to be getting weirder. Realizing the guy Lee liked was the prince, Han, Park says it does not matter whether he is soft or not, what is meant to be known has already been known. Noticing Lee's subdued expression Park then places that aside and raises how Han already told him he will speak to the mad dog about it. Noting how Han is the older of the two Park helps Lee to feel better since this problem can easily be solved. Since they are family Park states they would not fight out of nowhere. With this supposition challenged Park concludes that family or not, the mad dog is clearly insane. Park had provided Lee's number since he received a free donut voucher. While students regard Lee as Gan's wife Park remarks that since things have turned out this way why does he not date Gan for real. Speaking how Lee's looks are average, and his family background is similar, where his studies are not any good, and his future is pretty ambiguous, Park continues that up until recently there was not anyone interested in him.

He then speaks Han would not do such a thing, why would such a modest student like him do so. Leaving, Jumin says for his highness Han to see the aforementioned commotion. Asking if Han's bruise hurt Jumin wonders if he is worried about his brother or about someone else. Jumin frames it as the all mighty prince wanting to steal his brother's lover and questions if he has not heard a tale like that before.
